We are pleased to invite you to join 1628 Ltd. to view our newest Winter exhibition. 

The 1628 Ltd. Winter Exhibition, Rephrase: An exploration of the World Through the Lens of Pop Art, is a collaboration with Visionaries and Voices (V+V). V+V is an inclusive art studio located in Cincinnati, Ohio, and is comprised of a community of friends and supporters who provide creative, professional, and educational opportunities to artists with and without disabilities. 

V+V is a very diverse art studio where 130 artists call home, each with very different art practices and desires for producing art.  The approach V+V takes is to support each person individually and support their career and concept of art.  Many common themes appear organically throughout the studios.  

The body of work in Rephrase is centered around one such theme; responding to visual culture and popular culture icons.  Assembling artists around the idea of the word “pop” can be problematic as it can refer to a specific era in art history as well as contemporary and personal issues at play.  This group exhibition references and honors artists who have been deeply affected by something from our visual culture and bring new meaning through “rephrasing” these icons and ideas through their unique perspective and process.  

Included in the exhibition are the following artists: Courttney Cooper, Leah Davis, Andy Eisenhour, Megan Godsey, Andrew Hostick, Tripp Huggins, Dale Jackson, Jon Klosterman, Linda Kunick, Ebony Malcolm, Adam Maloney, Remi Mauhet, Barb Moran, Amber Ortman, Marci Rosin, Tyler Spohn, Daniel Wescott, Cathrine Whited, Ishmael Williams

  • The pieces in the exhibition will be numbered to promote a steady flow of guests throughout the facility. 
  • The exhibition opening will occur on Saturday, December 5th from 12PM-5PM, but the exhibition will remain up until the end of February in order to encourage guests to come after opening day.
